A Negative thought always has a heavenly counterpart- G. Cooke
Every day, we wake up with a mindset that works for us or against us.
A negative mindset kills our creativity and it robs us of power. However…
A negative thought always has a heavenly counterpart. LINK
A mind set on the Spirit is life and peace (Romans 8:6). It produces a way forward and it allows us to enjoy the circumstances and the discovery that we are going to make. It allows a strength to emerge and be developed.

A negative thought always has a heavenly counterpart.
For example, what if frustration is actually a sign that an upgrade is present?
What if frustration is simply God stopping you from walking down a road that He doesn’t want you to walk down. What if frustration is a sign that an upgrade is present, and you need to stop worrying enough to look around and find it? What if the Kingdom equivalent of frustration is endorsement, that God wants to endorse something about you in Jesus?
Frustration is a confession that we are powerless. That is not throne-room thinking. Throne-room thinking always declares our place of advancement. I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me. Throne-room thinking declares who I am in Jesus.
In frustration, we are saying, “I can’t do this. This is not working. I am so frustrated,” and the Father is saying,
“No, let’s change that thinking. In this situation right now, I am endorsing something for you in the Spirit. I am setting you up for something. I want you to know something about yourself. I want you to know something about who I am for you in this situation.”
Here’s the thing about frustration — To really get the best out of it, frustration has to turn to celebration. If you stop being frustrated and started celebrating, you would be in a whole different space, and so would your circumstances.
The same kind of equivalent can be found for everynegative thought.
You can make your situation bow the knee to the Christ in you—regardless of how ugly that situation is. It starts with a thought.
Try this. Let your mind wander and catch the first negative thought that comes. Immediately ask Holy Spirit for the heavenly counterpart and choose to dwell on it. Test & repeat.
